    Have any of you chosen to display them out of the box? I'm wondering if I should.

    On one hand I'd love for all of them to be on the shelf with the rest of my Classics.

    On the other hand, I'm worried about accidents/sun damage/dust/etc.

    I have then on display, behind cabinet doors with no glass. But then again all my toys are behind solid doors with no glass. If I wanna see something I open the door.

    I only took the Seekers out. Bigbite and what’s his name have never even been transformed.

    Also Banjo just took a dump in his litter box and it’s gagging me out. That dude has a sick butt.

    Someday when I got my Botcon box set (fully expect to shell out $700 for it or just the seekers) I will keep it sealed, because I doubt I can forgive myself if something bad ever happens to them.

    I have all 5 from the box set on my 'cons Classics shelf, and I have the Springer and Huffer, I won off of ebay for 50 some bucks from Vnuts of all people, on the 'bots shelf. Hopefully I can get a Weirdwolf to complete the 'cons and for FP to make a Elita-1 for the 'bots.

    edit- just to point out the box itself isn't sealed shut (at least for the Iacon buyers)

    What's the point then, though? I mean, I'm not trying to pick at you, but just get an empty box and tell wifey to hit you over the head and say "there, botcon figs" and you wouldn't know the difference! :lolol 

    Seriously though, I have the same concerns you do, but I could not forgive paying what I have and then not enjoy them displayed. In the case of Classics, that means on the shelf, front and center! Like so:

    But to each their own.

    If you're seriously selling for that, hit me up with a PM. I'm digging for change as we speak.

    Haven't decided with mine yet, I've left space to put them all with my classics, but I want to have the box somewhere too. No idea where my other show exclusives are going to go though :(

    I put Bugbite's crew on display. I'm getting Strongarm, swoop and C Thunderblast in the mail, I'll repaint her into Elita-1 and I'll be all set.

    I agree. If you dont enjoy them all you have is a $600 dollar box. And if you're not going to enjoy them might as well put them on ebay for someone who will.

    Hey Samana, I see an ugly titanium that got in your classics display, kick him out! Also, what's with the yellow walls? Might be an aesthetic choice, just seems kind of odd, but otherwise nice display.

    The titanium was officially booted as of yesterday. That's an old pick, sorry. :( 

    Hey, I like my walls! Blame my pos for camera for royally screwing up the shade. It's orange, btw.

    EDIT : Better?

    Yes, I realize my hypocrisy with all those boxed Alts (and BTs, but that's my choice). It's simply a remnant from my move. There has never been a figure I haven't touched or played (except maybe a double). Unless someone has some free shelves to donate me, I have no room for them yet. Although I have enjoyed their unboxed company for years at my previous residence. And I like seeing the car mode for BTs. BotCon figs don't have clear windows or turn into basically model cars. Boxes keep em dust-free, too. :)

    I took the seekers out of the box and threw the rest in the trash. Actually the box went in the recycling bin...
























    NOT! Truthfully, I wish I had this set and kick myself for not plunking down the ridiculous price when I had the chance.

    A few years ago i learned to take everything out of the box and play with it.
    I had over $65,000 burn up in my room.And i never played with anything.
